Lucky Number Seven

myriade90

 

Last night I finally managed to get that last 70%+ done, so after almost two years Myriade is finally max level! Yay!

Timing could’ve been better, I admit, since she’s hitting 90 the same day of the instant boosts. I’ve saved a whole set of Timeless Isle gear so she gets to skip the grind, which is a good thing because I haven’t dared to take her there just yet. Ah, downsides of being stuck on a PVP server…

Still, seventh toon to hit 90 now, hurray!

WoW Screenshot a Day Challenge – Day 16

Today’s prompt: Cooking.

"I may be Undead, but I'm still not picking up FLIES. Not when I have a minion to do the dirty work." (Featuring: Myriade)

Undercity has the best set of cooking dailies, imo, if only because the requests are a little… different. This one involves collecting flies from rotten meat.

Nothing says ‘gourmet’ more than exotic ingredients, hey?

WoW Screenshot a Day Challenge!

So in typical me fashion, I’ve decided to hop on the bandwagon and take up Tycertank‘s WoW screenshot a day challenge! I’m horrifically late – also in typical me fashion – pretty much due to my habit of playing the game (hence, taking all the screenshots) on my desktop but blogging from my work laptop. If you think this leads to a lot of incomplete posts with [[INSERT PICTURE HERE]] breaks littered everywhere, you’d be right. The amount of posts I have sitting in my drafts folder as a direct result of this is mind-blowing.

Organisation and time management skills: I haz them not.

I’ll be playing catch-up on the two weeks that I’ve missed, but splitting them into separate chunks to avoid being TOO image-heavy on the posts. That, and also because I only found out about this challenge last week, I’ve only actually been taking screenshots since then. The first seven days’ worth are pictures in my head only.

…Yeah, I gotta fix that. I’m on it, I swear.

Meanwhile, here are my entries for Days 8-15 of the challenge in reverse chronological order!

Day 15: The best

Day 14: Trash

Not sure what broken carts, old hay and flies are doing in the house Yoon supposedly lives in, tbh... This is why I need to be best friends with Gina Mudclaw all the time. (Featuring: Tyel)

Day 13: Fast

FIRST RULE OF ROLL CLUB: YOU DON'T TALK ABOUT ROLL CLUB. Aka I was rolling so fast I forgot I was supposed to be taking pictures. (Featuring: Xerna)

Day 12: Macro

Confession: the 'tips' on the loading screen still teach me new things. Like auto-run, and opening my macro menus.

Day 11: I love doing this!

Raiding is still my favourite thing ever; raiding with a really fun group even more so. (Featuring: Xerna + Pallytank + really fun group + dead Durumu)

Day 10: Beverage

Kun Lai quest where you roll barrels of beer at adds to blow them up. I may or may not have done it multiple times on different toons just for the kabooms. Also, ignore my DK's fantastically mismatched gear. (Featuring: Khione)

Day 9: 2 o’clock

The glyphed Borrowed Time visual disappears really quickly so the fact that I somehow managed to screenshot at EXACTLY 2 o'clok is pretty dang brag-worthy. (Featuring: Teavee)

Day 8: Peekaboo

The cloud serpent hatching scene is ridiculously adorable, I JUST WANNA SQUSIH THOSE GOLDEN CHEEKS AHH (Featuring: Isolah's ridiculously adorable cloud serpent hatchling <3)

If you’re wondering why I’m specifying which of my toons are featured in the shots: my guildies have been accusing me of favouritism amongst my alts. THESE FALSEHOODS MUST BE DISPELLED.

In Your Basin, Assaulting Your Bases

It seems that all the times I’ve let WoW get in the way of something – a new game, book, TV, whatever – has come back to haunt, and the blog (being the ‘new’ WoW-related thing) is now being gotten in the way of… if that makes sense. Adulthood has reared its no-nonsense head for the past week, shoving much upheaval onto my keyboard and essentially preventing any attempts at Le Post the Second getting written sooner.

Karma: being a beeesh since before it was cool.

Between that and having to deal with yet another week of my raid group having to pug unreliable healers (the latter will most likely be the underlying reason of many future posts – you have been forewarned), I’ve spent very little time on my druid save for finally completing the Lorewalker achieves and getting Pandaren Ambassador.

Instead, in a fit of stress-induced recklessness, I put my non-existent badass game face on and jumped feet-first into PVP. And not just any PVP, mind you…

Meet the brave soldiers who subjected themselves willingly to Arathi Basin on its call-to-arms weekend.

Low level PVP – where TRUE heroes are made!

Frankly, AB is one of my favourite battlegrounds – but past experience has taught me that doing ANY bg on its call-to-arms weekend is pretty much delivering yourself to graveyard camping at your home base by premades. I try to avoid massacre when I can, but at low levels there aren’t many other choices and I figured AB trumps WSG/EoTS anyday. And premades can’t possibly be common when you’ve only got a 60% speed ground mount, right?

I tried it out on my mage first. I’ll admit – I really wanted to see how Alliance played. It feels like they win 7 times out of 10 when I PVP on my druid, and most of those 7 times involved much ROFLstomping over my dead body. I was curious. I had to know. What’s their secret?

My mage not only had a really exciting time pewpewpewing, she somehow managed to get Disgracin’ the Basin on her first AB run. My monk and warlock? Died a lot, even with all the healing (Xhiwei is mistweaver-specced) and healthstones and CC’s at their disposal. 

Alliance had, in the few ABs I joined, a distinct lack of:

  • fighting on the roads
  • fighting away from the flag
  • poor defense – people who capped a flag stayed to defend it
  • QQing

Horde had all of the above. Secret: revealed.

Granted, this could be down to pure luck and good timing, since I only played for about an hour in total before going to bed. Maybe Alliance-side is extra strong at night? I know Horde has plenty of capable PVPers at all levels, having been fortunate to be carried by them on my previous, sporadic attempts on my druid. Maybe by coincidence, they’re all in a different level bracket?

All in all, this calls for MOAR PEEVEEPEE! I’d say it’s because I want to do more Horde vs. Alliance comparisons, but who am I kidding – I had so much fun flailing around that I can’t wait to go back. ROAAARRR!

(End note: to the warlock in that first AB I did on Funderling, you are made of so many levels of awesome for conjuring all those lockrocks and trading them to every. single. person. on the team. That was quite possibly the best act I’ve seen someone do in-game ever, and I’m making it a point to follow your example on my own warlock from now on. FREE COOKIES FTW)
